In the valley of the ghosts

In magnificent Parc national des Monts-Valin, take the Fantôme-Express shuttle to the famous Vallée des Fantômes (valley of the ghosts).

Admired at these heights, the hills of the piedmont, the Monts Valin mountain range, and the Saguenay lowlands stretch as far as the eye can see.
